Tool risk reduction measures
100 RISK REDUCTION MEASURES
Assessing and clearing of flood damages at constructions and infrastructure
The measure includes the assessment of damages at buildings and infrastructure (e.g. transport routes, water supply, and waste water disposal) concerning their usability and the necessity for restoration after an event. The measure is also important for the settlement of claims through insurance companies. In case that support from public disaster funds is available, procedures and criteria’s need to be defined (beforehand).
